Resource Type: 

The ATOSCE is a simulation and assessment tool involving an interprofessional, ambulatory (outpatient) encounter.  Western University of Health Sciences developed the tool to provide geriatric-focused IPE teamwork education and practice with simulated exercises. Two cases were developed and scripted for actors portraying the standardized patients, a standardized caregiver, and standardized clinicians. 

A flash drive is available to educators free of charge.  The flash drive includes an Educator's Guide to the contents; materials for an online course; two simulated cases; assessments; videos depicting performance; and training and delivery instructions.

To request the flash drive:
